Women's boutique open along Eel River

Work progressing on Sagamore fertilizer facility

A girls’ and women’s accessories boutique recently opened near the west entrance to the River Bluff Trail in Logansport.

Glam Girl Boutique owner Megan Ramirez said she’s focusing on selling inexpensive women’s accessories and girls’ accessories and clothing for the time being. Ramirez is leasing a small room at 810 Michigan Ave. for the boutique, adjacent to Greatech Services, a computer repair and information services establishment.

Opening a boutique seemed like a good fit for Ramirez, she said. “I like to shop,” she explained, and believes that “when you dress up, you feel better about yourself.”

She’s working with longtime friend Stormie Rivera to run the shop. Rivera helps out on weekends in between accounting classes and a full-time job.

Ramirez is devoting her time to Glam Girl, drawing on experience she gained while working with Mauro Picardo to open La Tienda Coataneco on Broadway this past fall and Lucky Sports Bar in May 2013.

Ramirez plans to expand the boutique’s selection of girls’ clothing in the next several months and hopes to add women’s clothing sometime in the next three years.

Ramirez also operates an online store at glamgirlboutique.storenvy.com. She can be reached at 812-259-1981.

SAGAMORE OPENING SET BACK A MONTH

Work is progressing on Sagamore Warehouse, a new fertilizer hub opening on Logansport’s southeast side, but the start of its operations will probably be set back about a month, the head investor in the project said.

Sagamore Warehouse will be a 30,000-square-foot storage facility for wholesale fertilizer. Phase one was expected to cost $2.5 million to 3 million, investors said in November, and hoped at the time to have the warehouse up in December.

“The winter was pretty hard on us, and the rains, lately,” Jim Hedrick said.

Hedrick, president of Sagamore Warehouse, said crews were preparing to install siding and pour a concrete floor last week. Most of the other concrete work is done, he added, as well as 60 to 70 percent of the steel work.
